Amy10 Posted October 30, 2009 Share Posted October 30, 2009 I know people complain about the opposite and I really sympathise that libido problems are shit, especially in a relationship, BUT I have been oversexed for a few years now and it doesn't matter whether I am hypomanic, baseline or really depressed. I get obsessed all the time, even at work and ahem, have to do something about it quite annoyingly frequently. What is saddening is that I may well be able to come off my AP and live on Lithium/Lamictal and anything else very prn. A psych floated it. However, since APs are supposed to reduce one's sex drive, I can't imagine how much of a pain it'd be to have a big increase in libido, as I often hear is the case. It already makes me less effective at work and an insane flirt out and about and I don't want this to get worse. It is in my mind all day long, even if I have an OK amount of sex during the week. Three days is my limit of no sex and feeling ok . I feel my life can often be controlled by it. I could never not have a friend with benefits or boyf. It is making me less functional as I think about it all the time. I remember thinking recently, during a week I was even more depressed than usual, that the great thing was that I wasn't obsessed with sex that week. Very freeing. Does anyone know what helps? Has anyone had similar experiences? Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
